About Topchanchi

Topchanchi is located just 37 km from Dhanbad and 109 km from Ranchi. In Topchanchi, tourists can see an artificial lake that was excavated along the base of the slant of the Parasnath Hill in 1915. This lake was created to supply water to Jharia.

Visitors can also go to Gomoh, which is 6 km from the Topchanchi Lake. Gomoh is the place where on 18th January 1941 Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose embarked on the train for his departure from India. To honour this event, a statue of Netaji has been set up in the Topchanchi market.

"The jungle near the dam is very dense and charming"

  • 6.00/7

I have been to this for a family outing. The dam is very beautiful. The jungle near the dam is very dense and charming. During sunset, animals can also be found in that area. There is no restaurant near it, so you have to take the food along with you.
